Isaac likes to fish off his castle.

Owen and Isaac like to play trains in the kitchen

Look what I found in the bathroom cupboard!

Dance Anyway

This is a little out of the norm for our blog, but since Rob works in the ADA office and we've dedicated ourselves to those that are "differently-abled", I wanted to share this story from LDSLiving.

It's the story of Briana Walker, a dancer that was in a car wreck and is paralyzed from the waist down.  She is now part of the first wheelchair hip hop dance team.

At the Park

Rob takes the kids to the park twice a week during his lunch break while Emma is working. These are some of the experiences they have.
The picture above is of Ethan at the top of one of his favorite slides. Most of the time he will go down on his tummy but the video below is one where he chose to go on his bum.

Doesn't Isaac look just perfect?

We just had to post this picture, it is Cosette asking if Rob would take a picture of her rock. Besides the colors are great.

He does this a hundred times in an hour, he will climb the stairs himself and go down the slide on his own and get up and do it again and again. What a stud!

Oh Woe is My Toe!

Saturday I was being productive and chopping wood with my new axe. One unruly log fell square on my toe and broke it. When it's taped up and in a roller skate, it hardly hurts at all. Doesn't work so well in sandals. Good thing the weather has turned cold and I don't wear them anymore.

The roller rink for Family Home Evening. Rob skating with a parasol and Ethan.

Cosette and Isaac were starting to get the hang of air hockey.

We had a night of "If you give Cosette a fairy wand...then she will ask for her fairy wings. If you give her the wings, she'll ask for her whole outfit. When you tell her it's put away in the Halloween box, she'll wait for Daddy to get home and ask him...When she gets her fairy costume on, Isaac will ask for his dinosaur..."

The Week after Halloween

Ethan had his first birthday Nov. 3. It's hard to believe he's reached this milestone. While I was in the hospital, Rob flew up here to Pocatello for his job interview. When Ethan was 13 days old, Nov 16th, we flew up to pick out our house. When Ethan was 8 weeks old, we moved up here. With Christmas being just 6 weeks away, that's how close we are to have lived here for one year.

This is what a sleeping dinosaur looks like at our house.

I can't vaccum with Ethan around, he chases the machine and sits in front of it. Now that he's walking, he chases me and tries to help. I guess I should make use of my helpful children while they're still willing...

Daddy didn't get to dress up for Halloween, so he dressed like a princess a couple days later. Cosette was his main costume designer.

Ethan pulls the blanket over his head to sleep. I wanted a picture of it to remember.

Isaac's innocent face when we asked if he'd snitched some candy.

We knocked on a couple of the houses between the church and home on our way back up the hill. The kids thought it was quite fun.

Trunk or Treating at the church. We got so much candy, it filled a 5qt ice cream container.

Halloweens & Birthdays

I'll just start by congratulating by brother Larry and family on the recent addition to their family. Aspynn Vera Frost was born Oct. 31. She's a regular Halloween treat! I would have been fine if Ethan was born on Oct. 31, but alas, he was born Nov. 3. So Ethan and Aspynn are three days shy of one year apart...

Isaac wanted to be just like his sister
We had a ladybug, dinosaur, and bat this year.

Some pictures from Ethan's birthday parth. He played in a piggy cake as you saw earlier.

Hello Mommy. It's hard to see, but he has Emma's cell phone held up the back of his head. He knows what a phone is for already...amazing.

Isaac and his favorite Unkie Ian.
